Masterpiece London 2018 London | Jun 27, 2018 - Jul 4, 2018

For the third year running, DAG will be participating at Masterpiece London 2018, the UK’s leading cross collecting fair for art, design and collectibles. For this year’s edition, DAG’s focus is sharper, and creates a narrative for Indian modern art that addresses a sophisticated, discerning audience.
20th century Indian art has a rich and varied diversity, but the carefully curated selection at Masterpiece has been chosen to reflect its ability to be part of an international dialogue. Consisting of eleven hand-picked works, the paintings straddle the period from the 1940s to the 1980s, with most being concentrated mid-century, at a time when Indian modern art was coming into its own. Its confident stance was the result of artistic experimentation to arrive at a technique and a context that was distinctive and set each artist apart from his peers. Between them, they represent different regional geographies, and have been part of extensive documentation and critical writing around their styles and subjects.
